A psych student lurker

Postby HealthPsychStudent » Thu Sep 16, 2010 7:45 pm

I'm a senior psychology student currently enrolled in a health psychology class. As part of an assignment, we were directed to observe the discussions taking place on an online support for a chronic illness for ~a week. I chose MS, as a good friend of mine's mom passed due to the disease.

I plan on simply lurking and being as unobtrusive as possible, but I wanted to give notice that I'd be around. However, if any of you would like to direct me to any threads that, in your opinion, offers a good description of any of the challenges you undergo, you are more than welcome.

odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range
